Continued yeast?: You might need additional treatment for yeast. But don't do it yourself this time: you need to see a doctor to confirm the diagnosis and decide about what treatment is best. Good luck!

More time: It takes a week or so for the symptoms to completely resolve. Can use a topical anti fungal outside for another week. Use vaginal lubricant if needed for easier sex.
